NAV Portugal has the mission to ensure a safe and efficient provision of Air Navigation Services, Its Lisbon Air Traffic Control Center is located close to Humberto Delgado Airport.
NAV Portugal carries out its work on mainland Portugal and in the Portuguese autonomous regions of the Azores and Madeira. The company’s head offices are next to Lisbon Airport, the Lisbon Air Traffic Control Centre, and the company’s Training Centre. The Oceanic Control Centre is located on the island of Santa Maria in the Azores.
In addition to these two important centres, NAV Portugal also has other infrastructures, providing air traffic services in the control towers of Lisbon, Cascais, Porto, Faro, Funchal, Porto Santo, Santa Maria, Ponta Delgada, Horta and Flores airports.
